Question; what about those who praise our prophet(p.b.u.h) using duff while sining i.e nasheed
i mean singing nt sining
Answer:All-Praise is dur to Allah,
Singing Anasheed about the Prophet (pbuh) is permissible, if the thing's they are saying about him are permissible, the reason why Im saying this is that some people over praise him (pbuh) by using sentences that involve terms of shirk, and this is haram....
As for using the Duff it is Haram as a genrel rulling, but is permissible in certain occasions as it has come in some narrations of Hadiths...
The Scholars mention that it is permissible in,
1- The two Eids,
3- to celebrate the arrival from travel of a respected individual,
4-The mourning over a beloved one, (with out screeming for this is HARAM)
"Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) entered (my house) when I had two little girls singing the songs of Bu`ath and beating on a duff; so he lay down on the bed and turned his face away. Then Abu Bakr came in and scolded me saying, 'The flutes of Shaytan (the Devil) played in the presence of Allah's Messenger?' So Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) turned toward him and said, Leave them alone, O Abu Bakr! Every people have an Eid, and this is our Eid."
Al-Baghawi commented on this Hadith by saying:
"Bu`ath is a famous battle of the Arabs, in which there was a great victory for the Aws over the Khazraj. The war between the two tribes went on for one hundred and twenty years - until Islam came. The two girls were singing poetry that described fighting and courage, the mention of which is supportive to the Deen.
The permission given to sing during the Eids applies only to acceptable poetry that encourages good deeds and behavior. It cannot be extended to the songs calling to sins and disobedience, as is common in many cultures.
It was narrated that al-Rubayyi’ bint Mu’awwidh ibn ‘Afra’ said: “After the consummation of my marriage, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came and sat on my bed as far from me as you are sitting now, and our little girls started beating the daff and reciting verses mourning my father, who had been killed in the battle of Badr. One of them said, ‘Among us is a Prophet who knows what will happen tomorrow.’ On that the Prophet said, ‘Omit this (saying) and keep on saying the verses which you had been saying before.’”
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4852).
It was narrated that Buraydah said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) went out on one of his military campaigns, and when he came back, a black slave woman came and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, I vowed that if Allaah brought you back safe and sound, I would beat the daff before you and sing. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “If you vowed that, then do it, otherwise do not do it.’” So she started to beat the daff, and Abu Bakr came in whilst she was doing so. Then ‘Ali came in whilst she was beating the daff, then ‘Uthmaan came in whilst she was beating the daff, then ‘Umar came in and she threw the daff beneath her and sat on it. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “The Shaytaan is afraid of you, O ‘Umar. I was sitting and she was beating the daff, then Abu Bakr came in when she was beating the daff; then ‘Ali came in when she was beating the daff; then ‘Uthmaan came in when she was beating the daff, but when you came in, O ‘Umar, she put the daff down.”
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3690; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 2913.
It is reported that when Umar heard the sound of beating drums, he would send a person to inspect the occasion. If it was a Nikah (which was being announced by means of the drum) he would keep quite. Otherwise, he would punish those
involved. (Fathul Qadeer)
Sheikhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: "The Prophet (peace be upon him) permitted some types of rejoicing on the occasion of weddings and their like. He permitted the women, as well, to beat the duff during weddings and festivities. As for the men, during his time, not one of them would beat the duff nor clap their hands. Rather it is confirmed in the Two Sahihs that He (peace be upon him) said: Clapping the hands is for women; and raising the voice with tasbih is for men.
And: Allah curses those men who imitate women, and those women who imitate men.
And singing and beating the duff are of the acts typical of women. Because of this, the righteous Salaf labeled the man who did that, effeminate."
And Ibn Qudamah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "As for beating it (the duff) for men, it is makruh in all situations. It was only done by women; and if men do it, they would be imitating the women; and the Prophet (peace be upon him) has cursed those men who imitate the women."
Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, commenting on Ibn Qudamah's words, said:
"It is obvious that his words mean its prohibition (for men)."
And Ibn ajar al-`Asqalani said: "The Hadith that says, 'Announce (masculine plural command) the weddings and beat (masculine plural command) the duff for it,' is used by some people as evidence that beating the duff is not specific to women. However, this Hadith is unauthentic; and the authentic Hadiths (in this regard) give that permission to do that for women. Men cannot be included in that because of the general prohibition for men to imitate them."
Al-Mubarakpuri agreed with this statement from Ibn Hajar, and he added: "The fuqaha' (scholars) have said that the duff is that which has no bells, as Ibn al-Hammam mentioned... Likewise, the permissible singing during weddings is specific to women; it is not allowed for men."
And Ibn Kathir said: "... Nothing is excluded from that prohibition of musical instruments, except beating the duff for the young girls - during Eid days, at the arrival of a respected individual from travel, and during weddings - as has been indicated in the Hadiths, and as has been established in various places. And permitting that in some situations does not lead to permitting it in all situations."
Sheikh Bin Baz said, What is mustahabb (recommended) is to beat on the daff [simple hand drum] at weddings. This is mustahabb for women only, in order to announce the wedding and to distinguish it from fornication. There is nothing wrong with women singing amongst themselves, accompanied by the daff, so long as the songs contain no words that encourage evil or distract people from their duties. It is also a condition that this should take place among women only, and there should be no mixing with men. It should also not cause any annoyance or disturbance to neighbours. What some people do, of amplifying such singing with loudspeakers is evil, because of the disturbance it causes to other Muslims, neighbours and others. It is not permissible for women, in weddings or on other occasions, to use any instrument other than the daff, such as the oud, violin, rebab (stringed instrument) and so on. This is evil, and the only concession that women are given is that they may use the daff.
As for men, it is not permissible for them to play any kind of musical instrument, whether at weddings or on any other occasion. What Allaah has prescribed for men is training in the use of instruments of war, such as target practice or learning to ride horses and competing in that, using spears, shields, tanks, airplanes and other things such as cannons, machine guns, bombs and anything else that may help jihaad for the sake of Allaah."
